Old Couple Struggle to Find Food as They Live on Their Own, Get Help from Kind Guy

Old people are among the most vulnerable members of society, particularly because their old age makes them frail, often unable to work to have enough money for food, and more prone to various illnesses.

What’s sad is that there many old folks who are now living on their own, struggling to even feed themselves on a daily basis, because they either have no kids or were left by their families a long time ago.

According to Ledesma, he found the old couple living by themselves in a small hut in Brgy, Damakling, Paglat in Maguindanao.

Many netizens worried about the couple, especially because they look so thin that it was obvious they were not eating so much.

Dapat yan ang benificiary ng 4ps poorest among the poor. Pero kahit dito sa manila hinde rin yan nasusunod. Kasi ba naman hinahanapan pa ng id. Halimbawa kung ganyan saan kukuha ng id si lolo at lola,” netizen Lucila Bongaros wrote.

Many were hoping that the local government would help these two or that their family members could bring them home so that they won’t be living in such a difficult situation by themselves…
